Operation Support Our Troops needs helpers to assemble care packages for troops stationed around the globe.
The organization needs up to 50 volunteers to assemble and pack boxes Saturday from 11 a.m. – 3 p.m. at the Issaquah Valley Senior Center, 75 N.E. Creek Way.
The prospective volunteers must contact Sheryl Sheaffer at firstname.lastname@example.org in order to sign up. The senior center can only accommodate a limited number of volunteers, so after Operation Support Our Troops reaches the 50-person limit, no more volunteers can be accepted.
Everyone can contribute in other ways.
The organization seeks monetary donations to pay for postage and cover the cost of miscellaneous items. The donations can be sent to Operation Support Our Troops, C/O Nadine Gulit, 280 S.W. Clark St., B-204, Issaquah, WA 98027, or at any KeyBank branch.
Or donate some of the following items to stuffed into holiday stockings and boxes:
- Crystal Light
- Individually wrapped hard candy
- Hot chocolate or spiced cider mix packets
- Shaving cream in nonaerosol containers
- Feminine hygiene products
- Baby wipes
These items can be dropped off at any U.S. Army Recruiting office on the Interstate 5 corridor. Find a complete list of local recruiting stations here.
